I tought it would be nice to create a living Carpet , which invites people to sit down in the sun and enjoy Nature.
This project was realized at the Botanical Garden in Linz (Austria).
Step 1: Finding a Place
First you just need to pick a place for you Project. You decide if it´s in your private space or if you have access to a public space where more people can enjoy your work and gather for exchange or just sharing free Time.
Step 2: Adding Soil
you need to have enough earth, depending on the square meter you want your carpet.
I directly put the earth on the grass so later the rolling lawn can grow- the whole carpet increases and looks more like a Carpet lying on the ground.
Step 3: Add Rolling Lawn
put the rolling lawn on the prepared ground and water it twice a day.
After a few days it might be rooted.
Step 4: Start Cutting
When the lawn has rooted you can start cutting the Pattern you like. I preferred working with a scissor to make precise lines and surfaces.
Step 5: Enjoy
Enjoy your playful thoughts while resting on a living carpet ;)
....and don´t forget to recut or adding new patterns.
